This project involved a qualitative study of the feasibility of implementing a photovoltaic system at Intel in Costa Rica. The information presented in this project came from data collection, archival research, interviews, case studies, and the RETScreen Photovoltaic Project Modeling software. We used a cost analysis to determine that a photovoltaic system is currently not economically feasible, but identified what would make it feasible in the future. We also determined that a photovoltaic system may help preserve the Costa Rican ecosystem.
